    Recoil Spring for a Glock 27 .40

    Hello everybody! I recently got a Glock 27 .40 from a buddy of mine. It has an interchangeable 9mm barrel (wolf) with it that he used, but I have found that it jams alot when used. I'm thinking that I need to get a recoil spring for 9mm, but I don't know what to get. I found a site where you can get them, but they range from 14-24 lbs. All it tells me is: 14 lbs = reduced power, 16 lbs = factory standard, and 18, 20, 22 & 24 lbs = extra power.
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks!

    From what I know, the Glock standard springs are 18. IMO, I would install a factory or aftermarket stainless spring, in the standard 18 lbs. I would put the correct barrel in and go to the range and fire MANY rounds using the original barrel. You need to rule out the fact that it's a problem with the conversion or the weapon itself. If it does just fine with the .40 barrel, then I would think twice about using the 9mm barrel. By my own practice, I personally don't like the conversions, for any firearm. If I own a .40 and want to fire 9mm, I would buy one. (Gun, not barrel). Just a thought, but someone will probably chime in with another answer. Good Luck!

    Also remember that the different strengths of the recoil springs installed could be highly affected by the grain of round you are firing. I hope you aren't trying this with reloads. Nothing wrong with reloads, (I don't use them), but with a problem that you are describing, I would, no doubt, fire some quality ammo in it!

    We fire good quality ammo. Winchester, Corning, etc. I don't fire the 9mm much, just wanted to use it for practice since .9's are cheaper than .40's

    Understand. I have found that there isn't that much of a difference in the price between .40 and 9mm. Good to hear you are using fine quality ammo. So, like I said before, fire a lot of .40 through it to make sure it's not the firearm, especially if you are going to be carrying it.

    I assume it's a gen3 Glock? before gen4 Glock used same recoil spring for 9mm and .40 guns (later slides are heavier tho). I have a G22 gen4 with LWD barrel so just got a G17 spring for it. For gen3 I'd get a calibration pack with 3 different reduced power springs and try them out; shoot a box thru each and see which one works the best.

    Yes Gray_Wolf, I believe my Glock is a Gen3. My avatar is a picture of it.
